I never thought of myself as a novelist. Honestly, I never really envisioned myself as a published author. Once, long ago, I started writing what was a very personal story for me, but I did not get far with it. I can only imagine that it was not in God's plan for me to write that story. However, the desire to write has never left me and I have worked on several projects over the years.
While working on one of the other projects, I felt a calling to write a cozy mystery. I was uncertain of where to begin, but I leaned on God and I forged onward in prayer - and the most amazing thing happened... the story came together beautifully. God gave me the story, the mystery, the characters, and ideas for several more stories to come in the series.
And the book is selling extremely well. There were over two hundred pre-orders and sales have been steady since release day. My launch party was a smashing success and I have gained quite a few followers in a short amount of time. Clearly, God is at work with these books.
I am blessed to be a part of God's magnificent plan.
